This movie may be considered as Dark version of the movie Director special , most of philosophy is same . But this movie stands highlighting negative aspects in better way . Also the sad climax is also much better than the Director special.
Also most of scenes are comparable , as Rangayana Raghu plays father role is both the movies .
Great cinematography 10/10 for it . If not watched Director special you will feel this movie is one of the best movie in recent times.
Maybe even Director special was also inspired by the book /play this was based .So no complaints , it is a worth watch movie.
